More Allegations of Illegal Voting from McDaniel Supporters

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, Miss. -  It's a battle of he said, she said. Chris McDaniel staffers and supporters are comparing poll books from June 3rd's Democratic primary and June 24th's Republican primary runoff to see if there was cross over voting.

"We believe there's potentially 1200 voters who were ineligible to vote in June 24th runoff," says Bill Billingsley, a McDaniel supporter.

"That's just not try, I've got 3 examples, specifically in the Fondren Presbyterian precinct 14, I think the McDaniel camp is saying there is 192 alleged illegal votes if you have 192 illegal votes it means those people voted in the democratic primary if you go look at the roll only 25 people voted in the democratic primary in precinct 14," says Senior Advisor to the Cochran campaign, Austin Barbour.

On the 24th poll workers used poll books to show if they voted in the Democratic primary.

"To help prevent mistakes republican and democratic parties switched the poll books for each precinct for a runoff," says Hinds County GOP Chairman Pete Perry.

Poll documents released to News Channel 12, do show where voters casts their ballots in the Democratic primary and the Republican primary runoff. Perry says that could be clerical mistakes, that will be looked in to.

We have no word yet on whether or not the McDaniel campaign will continue their investigation to see if there was any cross voting in other counties.

"I think it's worth the efforts to try to get better information," says Billingsley

Perry says he hopes to have all votes certified by Tuesday, July 1.
